You may have seen the recent news coverage about AAUP identifying some problematic practices restricting academic freedom of Purdue Global faculty and students. These include the Non-Disclosure Agreement faculty were expected to sign (which was then dropped with the help of AAUP and faculty pressure), and the forced arbitration to which students are expected to submit (which is still operating).
We are scheduling a special meeting on Thursday, October 4 ahead of our routine fall chapter meeting to discuss and pass an AAUP chapter resolution and to encourage the Senate to do the same on these and related matters, in coordination with AAUP chapters at Purdue Northwest and Fort Wayne. We need your thoughts and suggestions for revision, and your voice in voting on the resolution. There are lots of perspectives that need consideration on this issue.
We will meet from 5-6 pm in STEW 102. Please put this on your calendar now, let us know you will join us, and let your colleagues know too. You do not need to be an AAUP member to attend, but you will need to be a paid member to vote. You can join or renew here.
